the collector probably didn't farm himself these items. He or she just bought them. Its just a selfish move to customize them.
a metaphor in real life : you buy a beautiful painting that is unique and you put your signature on it. It ruins the masterpiece in addition to the fact that you did not paint it. Its same for that, you put names on items that you didn't farm yourself. so sad and so shameless. It ruins the beauty and the purity of the item and consequently the beauty and the purity of this game.
If you don't like it, that's your choice. To make such a stupid parallel, no.
Customizing weapons in GW has nothing to do with tagging a master cloth IRL. Already for some weapons, it adds 20% damage which can be a major power asset. For my part i customize my precious weapons on my main, because even in case of hack and even if they are destroyed, the hacker will not be able to recover them. They are also weapons that i would keep forever, as a definitive one.
In short, everyone has their own thing, but stop giving examples that have nothing to do with it.
